Keeping Crop Protection Safe

Crop Protection Transparency

Farmers need safe and sustainable solutions to bring their crops to harvest. Today, roughly 20–40% of the world’s crops are lost to weeds, pests and diseases. And without the use of safe and reliable crop protection solutions, those losses would be much greater. That’s why we follow a rigorous process to guarantee safety at every step while bringing a pesticide to the market. Discover what goes into developing solutions that support a sustainable food system.
